My friend and I had lunch at this restaurant. After being seated, we were given bread with an olive oil and balsamic vinegar (?) dipping. We were also asked politely for our choice of iced water or warm water. I was pleasantly surprised by the service because you know how some restaurants are, when it comes to giving out free water.
We ordered and shared the ravioli with saffron, prawn and crab, as well as the squid ink risotto with clams, squid, prawns and scallops. I am happy to say that this time I took pictures. :)
The ravioli was good. My friend and I both thought so. I felt that the taste was pleasant. I had expected it to be very rich and salty, but it was just nice. I liked the sauce very much. The prawn and crab filling was tasty too.
The squid ink risotto was interesting. There was quite a lot of seafood and my friend and I both liked it as it was flavourful. She commented that it was the blackest squid ink dish she had ever seen. Indeed, it was so black that we could not make out the seafood in the risotto. :p Overall, although I enjoyed the dish, I thought that it was a little too salty. I would recommend that if you want to try this dish and don't like salty food, share it with someone and don't eat it on your own.
The staff was very polite and a man, whom I think might be the boss, cleared our plates promptly. We didn't order dessert as we were quite full, but I definitely think that this is a place worth going back.
A little note on the menu... If I remember correctly, the menu did not have any pictures... Perhaps pictures could be printed and the fonts could be changed (different fonts for the heading and food description) so that diners will have an easier time reading it and deciding what delicious food they want to try. :)
